However, it appears that the Self-Denying Ordinance was primarily for self-defence rather than political advancement.
He was under attack from the Earl of Manchester due to his own negligence at the Battle of Newbury, so the Ordinance appears to be a sacrifice that Cromwell was prepared to take to bury the quarrel and preserve his political career. So Cromwell was prepared to take risks, but this is far from plotting his own rise to power. In one of his speeches Cromwell complains that the army has been too influential in policy making:. It is true that in this speech Cromwell was rhetorically trying to assert his independence by attributing all the failure of the republican regimes to the army, but the point remains that Cromwell thought that the army was wielding undue political influence, and this was a plausible reason behind many of his actions.
For example Cromwell allowed himself to be overruled by the council in the matter of excluding members from the second Protectorate Parliament. This does not mean that Cromwell was a weak man with third-rate talents. He did show that he was an exceptional military commander through his victories in Scotland and Ireland, and he managed to stay in power in the s because he genuinely gained the respect of army and civilian bigwigs. When it was available to him after the dissolution of the Rump, he gave power to a Nominated Assembly and he tried to avoid interfering in its affairs.
While Hyde is no rumourmonger like some other royalist historians, 23 he does seem to have been influenced by royalist wishful thinking and anti-republicanism. W Dunn Macray vol.
